Product Description:
FISHING IDAHO, An Angler's Guide is the most comprehensive guide to fishing in Idaho. The book also covers camping, Native American lands, backcountry airstrips and all type of fishing in Idaho. From the northern tip of the Panhandle to the southeast corner of Bear Lake, Idaho is truly an angler’s paradise. The rivers, lakes, and streams of this vast and wild region offer nearly every type of freshwater fishing available. If you want to fish cold, deep lakes for large lake trout or small mountain streams for native cutthroat trout, the Panhandle has everything you need. If perch fishing is more your style, the state abounds in pan fish lakes that are not only uncrowded, but also relatively easy to get to. Stream anglers have more than enough famous water for a lifetime with Kelly Creek up in the Clearwater country, Silver Creek in the Wood River Area and the South Fork and Henry’s Fork of the Snake in eastern Idaho. Except for part of the Bear Lake Region and the Panhandle, the entire water system of the state is directly connected to the Snake River. Beginning in Yellowstone National Park, the Snake River arcs its way through the southern plains to eventually join the Columbia River in Washington state. Something as immense as the Snake River cannot be described adequately in the space available. It must be seen, felt and pondered. As large as the Snake River is, it is only part of the Idaho fishing story. Every region in the state has water that ranges from good to excellent, along with a few surprises. These maps and regional descriptions are not how-to information. They are merely jumping-off points for further research and exploration on your part. Some new information about high mountain lakes has been added to this edition. These areas can be dangerous, so thorough preparation must be made before venturing into these distant places. In a day and age when the world seems to be getting smaller and smaller, a walk through an Idaho mountain meadow along a babbling brook or watching a bobber on a high mountain lake with a grandchild or a friend can make the world big again. IDAHO'S BIG 10 To say there are 10 top streams in Idaho is like comparing beauty, which is truly in the eye of the beholder. There are so many wonderful areas to fish that listing 10 is actually more folly than fact, though the waters mentioned here are often the ones people talk about most when they talk about fishing in Idaho. Sample Region Introduction The Clearwater Region is one of the most productive fishing areas in the state, boasting more than a dozen species of game fi sh. It is also one of the most primitive. Lewis and Clark traveled through this area on their Voyage of Discovery and much of the land remains nearly as primitive today as it was in the early 1800s. The major drainage is the Clearwater River and it drains an area of 25,000 square miles from the northeast corner of the region, near the Montana border, south to the north side of the Salmon River in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness area. This region includes part of the Snake River downstream of Hells Canyon Dam and the Salmon River downstream of Riggins. For most of the way across the interior of the state, the north shore of the Main Salmon River acts as the region’s southern boundary. There are several world-famous trout streams in the Clearwater Region. North Fork Clearwater, Kelly Creek and the Lochsa and Selway rivers are spread across this wilderness drainage with their headwaters high in the forestlands of the Bitterroot Mountains. These streams alone would make a trip to the region worthwhile. Part of the Selway, and bits and pieces of the Lochsa and South Fork Clearwater rivers, run through rugged areas. The Lochsa and the Selway meet near Lowell and they form the Middle Fork Clearwater River and are part of the National Wild and Scenic River System. There are still some areas here where man has had little impact. This book is FISHING IDAHO.

Product Description:
Yellowstone National Park is one of the most crowded parks in the country, and for good reason: breathtaking scenery, amazing wildlife, and for anglers, great fishing. Yet, even a short hike from the road or trailhead into the backcountry of the park and the surrounding area can put anglers into even better fishing, often in solitude. This guidebook focuses on backcountry fishing opportunities in Yellowstone Park and surrounding areas in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho (Greater Yellowstone Area). In addition to full color photographs of the destinations, the author includes essential information for each stream or lake, including maps and written directions, flies, gear, and timing.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
The first edition of Fishing Idaho, An Angler’s Guide, was the first book of its kind to catalog so many fishing waters (and some non-fishing) in the state of Idaho, though it was definitely not a catalog. The first thousand copies of the book sold-out in a month in the mid 1990s. The book has been out of print for more than a year and Evancho worked hard to get the second edition ready by second week of December 2004.

The first edition contained more than 200 pages of fishing information about Idaho’s rivers, stream, lakes and reservoirs and took two years to compile. It was written for everyone from worm dunkers to fly casters, beginners to veterans, for winter and summer.

The second editions contains the same, though updated, type of information, plus three additional chapters and new backcountry fly-in fishing information. With approximately 260 pages, the new chapters cover Native Lands, high mountain lakes and a thorough, albeit brief, section on fishing Yellowstone National Park.

In the Native Lands chapter, Evancho shows that Fort Hall and the Duck Valley reservations have some of the finest fishing around and that the Nez Perce and Coeur d’Alene tribes manage their fisheries with great pride and care. Each of the reservations has specific regulations of which angler’s should be aware.

High-mountain lakes are an important part of Idaho’s fishing heritage, but not a lot has been written about them. Fly-in (backcountry/wilderness) fishing can be as dangerous as it is fun. Because of the influx of new pilots working the backcountry, many inexperienced pilots are going where experienced pilots fear to go. This chapter goes on to explain some of the common sense aspects of backcountry flying as well as the water that is available. The section is also a prelude to Evancho’s next book, Idaho High Mountain Lakes, to be published in the spring of 2005

And because a small portion of Yellowstone National Park is in Idaho, a brief overview of the park is included as well as comments on several of its better-known waters.

The book covers the significant bodies of water in Idaho where fish can be caught—more than 600, according to Evancho. It also tells you where, for an assortment of reasons, no fish will be found. "That," the author said, "is to keep you from wasting good fishing time."

Several sections of the book are dedicated to the selection of proper gear, tackle and equipment of all kinds. The most popular and seasonal fly patterns are also listed. The book provides an in-depth look at Idaho’s top ten fishing spots, which includes Henry’s Fork and South Fork of the Snake, Silver Creek, Middle Fork of the Salmon and Kelly Creek and more.

The rest of the easy-to-use book is a guide to fishing sites. It’s divided into eleven sections made up of the state’s seven major drainage regions. Each section includes a brief description of the region’s features and reference points. Each map shows waterways, cities, towns, interstate highways and state highways leading to fishing areas. Global positioning coordinates are also included for some mountain lakes.

Sub-drainages within each region are detailed with specific information on the rivers, creeks, tributaries, reservoirs, lakes, ponds and puddles in terms of fish limits and whether they are stocked, natural or wild. Also included is information about lodging, campsites, vehicle access, boat access, ADA access and foot trails.

Former Magic Valley Regional Manager Chuck Warren had high praise for the first edition. He said it was "user friendly for all types of anglers which is nice to see considering the diversity of waters and anglers we have in Idaho. I plan on keeping it on hand in my office to help me answer some of the many questions we get concerning waters around the state."

This second edition is more comprehensive and with four new chapters and an expansion on the species section, it will compliment the first edition nicely. The maps have been refined but still work best with topo maps, and the GPS coordinates allow for more precise traveling in backcountry areas.

Work has started on a website that will include season fishing reports and links to several other Idaho fishing sites.

The beauty of FISHING IDAHO is that even if you don’t fish, it’ still a great book for guiding you through marvelous places where fish are found. Idaho native, Wayne Walker—former All-American linebacker at the University of Idaho and All-Pro linebacker for the Detroit lions—wrote the book’s introduction and summed up the possibilities nicely:

This book is a way of sharing the natural wonders of this beautiful place called Idaho with people who can appreciate it, who will enjoy its outdoor pleasures to the fullest, but who, hopefully, won't abuse it. So use this book and enjoy yourself. And while you're out there, be careful with the fish, kind to the land and take time to smell the syringa.
